Eye Kid with swollen eye, chemosis, decreased motion, and impaired vision!

A 3-year-old boy seen is brought to the emergency room with a swollen eye. He was well until 3 days ago, when he developed symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, which gradually worsened. On the night before admission, he was noted to have a temperature of 39.6°C (103.3°F). On your examination, you find the child to have chemosis, decreased range of motion in the eye, and decreased visual acuity. Which of the following is your diagnosis for this patient?
a. Retinoblastoma
b. Periorbital cellulitis
c. Glaucoma
d. Orbital cellulitis
e. Myasthenia gravis
